The Story of Eneko… and Okene

The origin of the creation of our Okene therapeutic sleepsuit is for us a very special and at the same time very personal story.

We were a young couple when this project began, with our first son, Eneko. As new parents, we suffered from Eneko continuous crying during his first weeks of live due to what is known as colic, which is a common problem in these early months, and is characterized by intense and continuous crying.

Faced with the desperation of our baby and exhausted by the situation we drew up a clear objective: find a solution that would calm and relieve his symptoms. However the option that was best adapted to our baby was Thermotherapy.

After several successful applications we noticed a big improvement, so we began to think about what would be the most comfortable way to apply heat for both, Eneko and us.

And them we came up with the idea!

Given that the items of clothing used by babies every day in their first months of life are sleepsuits, we designed a sleepsuit which has a compartment in the abdominal area in which to place the pack of heated seeds and allow their constant application. Thanks to this simple but practical design, combined with the positioning of the baby in specific postures, we achieved effective results to Eneko´s problem.
Finally, in honor of our little one, we came up with the name of the brand starting from an anagram of Eneko, Okene.

What is more, even though our family has grown with the arrival of Marco, Eneko’s little brother, we haven’t had to worry about colic again. Marco has proved a wonderful model for all our sleepsuits and has enabled us to consolidate and advance in our Okene project.
